Blue Halo Foundation/Waitt Institute Caribbean

Posted on May 28, 2015 by - news

Use the ocean without using it up. Your ocean. Your future.


The Blue Halo Initiative sets out to empower communities to restore their oceans, and use ocean resources sustainably, profitably, and enjoyably for this and future generations. This is done by partnering with governments, communities, and scientists to create and implement ocean policies, including sustainable fishing practices and comprehensive ocean zoning. The Waitt Institute provides the toolkit, and the partner governments provides the political will. The Blue Halo Initiative deeply engages stakeholders in a science-based, community-driven approach.

Their mission – Use the ocean sustainably, profitably, and enjoyably, for this and future generations.
